"The Reivers" is a pleasant, wholesome, straightforward movie of the sort (as they say) they don't make anymore. Once was, Hollywood had the knack of turning out absorbing entertainments that really were family films. By that I mean they neither insulted nor challenged the intelligence of any member of the family.

The Reivers: The Story of the Border Reivers By (author) Alistair Moffat. Only one period in history is immediately, indelibly and uniquely linked to the whole area of the Scottish and English Border country, and that is the time of the Reivers. Whenever anyone mentions ‘Reiver’, no-one hesitates to add ‘Border’. As a pawn for peace, she is married off to Ronan Armstrong, the Scottish leader of a fierce band of border reivers-men. Blessed with devilish charms, Ronan could make any woman forget her woes. But the innocently seductive Analise is determined to escape, and her life with Ronan ignites into a war of its own.
